HI all

The metservice in NZ is like BOMO in .au.

Here's the page for Auckland Central with a 10 day forecast.

Some will say it is only a forecast and could be wrong or could change
etc.  What you may find useful is the "historical data" tab when you scroll
down to the "Past Weather"
For the month of January, the range of temp from low to how is listed.
Historical Average:  11 C - 28 C
Jan 2013: 13 C - 27 C
Jan 2014 : 11C - 26 C
